<OriansJ>well that isn't a problem, stage0 provides you the option of extending a garbage collecting and compacting lisp written in assembly or helping reepca with the FORTH or building the lisp compiler capable of bootstrapping a major C compiler. All are more than waiting for hours and hours of hard work :D
<OriansJ>And I already did the really hard parts too. So you don't have to deal with the commented hex parts of bootstrapping. Just choose macro assembly, primitive Lisp or FORTH
<fusion809>I decided to uninstall Guix with my distro's package manager, pacman, and install it using the binary installation guide. Whenever I run a command with Guix I get the error: "guile: warning: failed to install locale". Any ideas why?
<fusion809>oh and the output 'warning: failed to install locale: Invalid argument' comes out too
<CharlieBrown>fusion809: I get the same problem, even after doing Application Setup.
<CharlieBrown>Also, graphical elements lack details, like borders on buttons.
<benny>is there a way to start a guile repl that has access to the guix defined modules?
<brendyn>Would sddm be a good default desktop manager?
<xelxebar>benny: Check out the environment variable GUILE_LOAD_PATH. See the guile(1) man page for more details
<xelxebar>brendyn: Try it out and see if you like it? If you don't then it's pretty easy to change. There was a time that I tried out about 10 different window managers before settling on one that works for me.
<eric23>The automatic method of loading the usb does not work for me. I was following the libreboot documentation on how to manually boot. It says to set the path to the linux kernel. I don't see vmlinuz either. initrd is in /media/eric/gnu-disk-image/gnu/store/kq71yhydfgc0nksvmmn66cbvbj5a3mvf-system/initrd . Can I use that initrd?
<xelxebar>CharlieBrown: I dunno, man. You're gonna have to comb through the logs yourself. The Xorg logs print errors with lines containing (EE). Not sure about lightdm. I glanced at the links you pasted but nothing stands out. Your Xorg does have errors though.
<CharlieBrown>eric23: oh wait! i remember now. go poke around the file system for /boot/grub/grub.cfg, cd to grub.cfg's parent, and do `configfile grub.cfg`
<reed_>Hi all, I'm trying to learn the basics of the guix development work flow by writing a package definition for a basic hello world script, but I can't seem to find where my guile executable is located
<reed_>I've looked in my .guix-profile/bin and there is no mention of guile
<rekado>reed_ why do you expect guile to be installed in your profile?
<TeMPOraL>thanks for explanation; English is not my native language
<CharlieBrown>I just wanted to say that it sounds funny. My reading voice awkwardly auto-corrects it to "an oozer" to keep all the letters in place.
<CharlieBrown>TeMPOraL: Anyway, pardon the lengthy s//. I just wanted to give a reason.
<TeMPOraL>CharlieBrown: nah, I don't mind; I actually prefer knowing the reason; though at first I didn't realize you're correcting my language, and spent a minute trying to understand how "an oozer" is going to help me find guix/build/profiles.scm :D
<TeMPOraL>oh, (operating-system (skeletons ...)) look like something I could use to provide user configuration for fish
<benny>I can't scp to a guixsd host, I assume it's because PATH isn't being set correctly
<rekado>benny: you need to install openssh in the system profile
<benny>if I wanted to decrypt my root hdd using a usb device, my starting point for this would be the initrd.scm? am I right
<methalo\\>Hi, to cross-build a Guix image with hurd / mach as kernel, is it required to compile qemu for i586-pc-gnu first?
<CharlieBrown>The package description in Guix says Zile is just an Emacs clone, but Zile's site says it's a Lua API for making custom editors. I don't want to just use Zmacs, I want to play with `zz`, `zee` and `zi` too...
<bavier>CharlieBrown: I think those implementations are not released yet
<CharlieBrown>But Zile just released a new version, and that new version is in Guix.
<CharlieBrown>And the website advertises Zile as having those features.
<bavier>CharlieBrown: it advertises those features as "forthcoming".
<bavier>there is no such source in the release tarball
<bavier>CharlieBrown: you might consider emailing the maintainers if you're interested in helping with the new editors
<ng0>TeMPOraL: if you are willing to dedicate some time to fish on guix, I have resouce links
